Wired News pulls freelancer’s stories – Yahoo! News:

Online technology publication Wired News removed three articles from its Web site Wednesday after editors couldn’t confirm the authenticity of at least one source.

All three stories were written by freelancer Philip Chien, a Florida author and space enthusiast who quoted and cited Robert Ash. In the articles, published in June and July, Chien described Ash as a “space historian” and an “aeronautical engineer and amateur space historian.”

When a Wired News senior editor telephoned Ash to verify the quotation, Ash said he was not a space historian and never conducted an interview with Chien.
